Your favorite photographs??

The favorite photographers thread got me thinking..

How many of you are your own favorite photographer?

Would I be vain if I said I was my own favorite photographer?

It's my second hobby, after shooting and motorcycling...

One of my favorite photographs of all time is this one, and I don't know the photographer, nor where I got it.. Obviously, it was scanned from a magazine or book, on two separate pages... I wish I had it without the crease down the middle..

Through-the-Lens Club

Whoever took this was a genius, as I've seen this in print numerous places:

Through-the-Lens Club

Then...some of mine that I am proud of:

Lauterbrunner Valley, Switzerland, taking the cablecar up to the cheese producing village of 100 residents, Gimmelwald. My wife was cowering in the middle of the cablecar in fear, I was snapping photos. I really can't believe how steep of an incline the cablecar can climb!

Probably like many others, I value qualities I do not possess, so I have other photographers who impress me (a lot). See my post in "favorite photographer" thread. However, I am not ashamed of my work, either, even though it is of a very different kind. I enjoy photographing nature, and occasionally I like shooting scenes that make me reflect (that may also involve considerable postprocessing).

If that is how you feel, then certainly it would be honest to say so.

Here are a few of my photographs:

1. Nature / butterflies

These may not be my the most favorite, but they serve as a sample.

Just for grins, some more pics from Europe..

I hope I won’t bore you with these photos, but it was just such a fantastic trip, that I’d like to share, and maybe give some of you ideas for your next vacation..

Last year, we went to Switzerland, and took the “Glacier Express” from one end of Switzerland to the other, across the Alps. It was fantastic, with one picturesque scene after another, for 8 hours…

Through-the-Lens Club

And comfort on the trains was not an issue either, with great cabins, spotless in every way, and even “playground cars” to keep the kids entertained..

I think the train staff told us we would pass through 97 tunnels, and 230 bridges on the trip, I didn’t count, but it was a hell of a lot, and some of them pretty spectacular, like this one.

Our hotel in Murren Switzerland, perched on the edge of a cliff, overlooking the Lauterbrunnen Valley..

Looking off our balcony, was the “Eiger”, which Clint Eastwood climbed in the movie Eiger Sanction..

The town of Murren was great, with no motorized traffic whatsoever, foot or horse and cart, and I half expected to run into Heidi while there..

After Italy, we made our way down to Rome, spent a few days, and then on to my favorite place in the world, the Isle of Capri, off the coast of Naples, Italy..

Hehe... The three consecutive shots of the train entering the tunnel seemed almost suggestive (since you arranged all three of them in that order).

Thanks. I like that kind of mood. There are a few more like that on the same website. If you click on the image, it will take you to the gallery. Here is one you may also enjoy:

Does anyone know when this excellent picture was taken? It looks 1950s(ish).

Lawdogkms, thanks for sharing it with us.

You're welcome, I wish I knew who took it too, as I could give them the credit they deserve for the photo..

BTW: Doesn't Jack Weaver look like he could fit in with Coburn, Bronson, McQueen etc...........in the original Magnificent Seven Movie?????

For some reason I just love this photo. I took this picture of this 1800s church in Bridgeport California a couple of years ago. My wife & I stayed in a cool B&B about 1 block from this Church just last week.

It's got a nice atmosphere. For experiment, I would try to brigthen up the white facade of the church a bit while maintaining a nice, strong contrast on it (give it a little of a "graphics" look) and would try to get rid of the wire going across the photo.

Heh. Sorry, I always start thinking aloud when I see a photo I like.

what kind of camera?

LAWDOG, what kind of camera did you use on the picture of your daughter driving the boat and in Switzerland? The colors are pretty brillant as well as the clarity!
